Description

go-go dancing for Elvis by Leslie Greentree is the story of two sisters: the beautiful sister, who travels the States as a dancer for an Elvis impersonator, and her more conventional sister, who stays home and renovates her house. It’s a story of love, jealousy, betrayal, and the people who used to have our phone numbers. Most of all it’s a story about Hawkeye Pierce and power tools.
